re: I know you already have AWS certs so these might be loaded follow-up questions but I'm curious about your perspective :) Why are certs important? D...

These are very relevant questions Victor!

I view certificates as important because they allow me another mechanism to demonstrate my expertise in a particular subject. This isn't to say that they are required, but in my opinion they are important for giving you another foot in the door when it comes to interviewing for companies.

I absolutely believe developers should put in the time and effort into acquiring them if the cloud/AWS is of interest to you. Don't just get them to get them. That is like going to detention just to go to detention because they are not easy to obtain. But if you are curious about the cloud and want to learn more, certifications are a great way to kill two birds with one stone.
